JACKSON — Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney says people should review insurance policies as part of storm preparations as hurricane season approaches.
Chaney says in a news release that most insurance companies won’t accept new applications after a designated hurricane or named storm enters the Gulf of Mexico.
He says such a storm could develop as early as this week with a weather system forecast to take shape in the Gulf.
Chaney says coastal residents should act now and check insurance agents to make sure they have both flood and wind coverage.
Among other preparations, people should review coverage limits to make sure their belongings are fully covered.
